Hello All. TimC here.
I am as old as dirt and have been "computing" since my buddy, "Rocky", invented the wheel.
Although I worked on many different computers over time (mainly at the local college), my first "personal computer" was a TI-99. (I still have that one and a few more from family....want to buy one or two ?)
It was fun writing and reading "BASIC" back then. You would think that would lead to a career in computers..nope. I already had a career in Automatic Temperature Controls for commercial buildings. Actually, writing the "for / next" loops, etc. in basic, helped in my controls business when computers started taking over the control of the temperature in buildings.
So, I continued in the Controls business for the next 30+ years and watched computers / networks / web access take over most aspects of the business.
All the while, I kept reading and learning more about personal computers. It is amazing just how much we depend on them now.
1. If the "Internet" was disconnected all kids over 8 would just walk around in circles mumbling.
2. When was the last time you saw a teenager actually "write" a letter.
3. When you believe that you are pretty good at computers, there is always a 15 year old that can show you up.
